r4 clutch plate tool

awc on Mon June 09, 2008 12:42 PM User is offline

Year: 82
Make: chevy
Model: Truck

Trying to remove clutch plate. The clucth plate remover I have will not screw in. It goes on about one thread & stops. It's robinair #10861. For R4/A6 compressors. Thanks!

Sounds like it has the wrong thread count. I.E. Standard and Metric.

Tim, I think you right. I tried it on another R4 I had, it seemed to scewed in better on that one. That compressors clutch looked like item #33-2995N. The clutch hub it won't fit looks like item #20-10403. Did they change from standard to metric at some point on the clutch hubs? Do you have the part number I need?

This would be the kit I would suggest.

91000-A

The link didn't work but I still found it on your site. After doing a little search, I think around 1980 they did start using metric. I found a reference that says "will not work with metric threads". I assume this is the clutch plate hub threads & not the shaft. Is this correct?

That has both the metric and standard thread hub puller for the R4?

I do believe so, I can double check in the morning. Send me a email and remind me to check. Getting busy and I get side tracked at times during the summer.

Freedoms just another word for nothing left to lose

The old style R-4's (the ones with bolt on pulley rims) used the same thread and remover as the A-6, The newer style clutch assemblies use the same as the V-5 and H-6- these are easily recognizable by the pulley configuration-- the newer ones have welded pulleys...not bolted on.....

The number one A/C diagnostic tool there is- is to know how much refrigerant is in the system- this can only be done by recovering and weighing the refrigerant!!
Just a thought.... 65% of A/C failures in my 3200 car diagnostic database (GM vehicles) are due to loss of refrigerant due to a leak......
